We can’t do it
With our unique focus on nursery and elementary education—and with the support of our generous donors—The Long Ridge School empowers and challenges students from all walks of life to excel through progressive, inquiry-based learning. All of our resources go towards the youngest learners; our teachers, parents, guardians, alumni, and grandparents come together to invest in our students’ academic, social, and emotional growth.
Our thematic, interdisciplinary curriculum offers hands-on, experiential learning—encouraging our students to think creatively, and engage deeply—cultivating not just knowledge, but also a lasting affinity for the process of discovery.
Across our expansive, idyllic campus, all members of the Long Ridge community work together in a warm, joyful environment to guide children toward becoming compassionate global citizens. We nurture each child’s strengths and interests—instilling confidence and leadership skills, and collaboratively fostering the foundation for a fulfilling future.
Our donors are integral to realizing a shared vision: providing needed funds to increase the diversity of our student body, enabling us to attract and retain the best teachers, and ensuring that Long Ridge can continue to provide the formative education that students and alumni have valued for over 80 years.
We can’t do it without you.
